Gothic Nouveau Lolita Spring 2010

I have been titillated by the Spring 2010 contour runway looks, I love the gothic/primitive tribal mash up by the Mulleavy sisters and gothic aritocrate's wounded (Roarte), fragile strength which inspired my new line "Ren Faire".

Other influences that will be seen in the my existing lines (VintageReborn, SteamPunk and Twilight) will include "depression chic", "bold geometric contrasts" and "exotic goddess" looks a la Ana Sui, Alberta Ferretti, Versace and Gucci.

I am a bit bleary eyed but Victorious after finishing a Lolita/Nouveau design. 16" collar with a delicate triple strand of 2mm & 3mm jet, tourmiline, facited rose quartz and ivory swarovski crstals painstakingly beaded leading to an asymmetrical tro of Vintage gunmetal enamel flowers and finished with a thin silver belcher this design will definately bring joy to any Goth Lolita gal.

I will post a preview picture when I have the light to shoot. Stay tuned...
